This was the first triathlon of the Eastern Region series and all the children were very much looking forward to racing. Despite the early wake up call for many, the smell of bacon and sausages sizzling on the grill and the gentle warmth of the morning sunshine was a welcome greeting as the marshal’s guided the throng of vehicles, through the school grounds and into a spot just yards from the main event area.
Without any girl’s representing Tri-Force in this event, it was all down to the boys. They all performed well in their race, with three of them finishing superbly in top 10 positions; another podium position for Lucas Hartley (3rd) , Callum Powell (6th) and Robbie Laird (7th). Oscar Mitchell also dug in to finish a very creditable 26th out of the 40 boys taking part.
